DB Novena Day 8
Day 8: Together with Lay People in Mission and Formation
We know well that Don Bosco, from the outset of his mission at Valdocco, involved many lay people, friends and collaborators in such a way that they could be part of his mission among young people. He immediately “fostered participation and the sharing of responsibility by ecclesiastics and laity, men and women.” We were born and raised historically in communion with the laity and they with us.
St. John Bosco, pray for us!
The readings of the day are taken from The Post General Chapter 28 Reflections by the Rector Major, Fr. Ángel Fernández Artime, SDB.
